Song of the day: Sheena Easton- For Your Eyes Only


In 1981, the soundtrack of the James Bond movie For Your Eyes Only was released. It would be number 4 in the US and number 8 in the UK. Actually, Blondie also wanted to make the theme song, but this song was not good enough for the producers. Bill Conti and Mike Leeson wrote this song, with singers like Dusty Springfield or Donna Summer in mind to sing it. United Artists suggested Sheena Easton, a rising star. Conti wasn’t convinced, but decided to have a talk. In the end, she sung it! Enjoy

Song of the day: Pet Shop Boys & Dusty Springfield- What Have I Done To Deserve This?


Oops! I forgot to feature one of my favourite bands, and that while I’m running song of the day for almost one and a half year. A shame. I know. But now it’s their turn, which means that I have to put on the Pet Shop Boy alarm for a moment. Wait… WHIEOHWIEOHWIEOHWIEOHWIE That’s enough for now, I thought. This song was on their album Actually, which was a great album, including It’s A Sin (which would have been here if this song wasn’t there), Hit Music and One More Chance. This is one of the best songs from the album, so enjoy
